Coffee Pot Lake
Photo of Coffee Pot Lake

This lake is best known for its rainbow trout fishing.  It is very popular with fly anglers in the spring and early summer providing great chironomid fishing for the months of March, April and May. 

Despite its reputation as a trout fishery this lake provides fishing opportunties for yellow perch, black crappie and largemouth bass.  This lake is in a remote location but there is a BLM Campground and boat launch available. The campground allows anglers to stay overnight and enjoy the lake after the long trek to reach their angling destination.  The campground operates on a first-come, first-served basis.
